Burzio, Luigi (1998)

Abstract

This is one of several papers in which Burzio claims that relationships of correspondence between surface forms suffice to account for all alternating behaviour, rendering underlying representations and relationships of input-output faithfulness superfluous. Burzio highlights the fact that, in the absence of stipulations to the contrary, the theory of output-output correspondence allows an output form to enter into multiple simultaneous relationships of correspondence with other surface forms. Burzio argues that this power is needed to account for the properties of Italian agentive nouns in -ore. However, Burzio’s analysis of Romance agentives has been challenged: see e.g. pp. 15-17 in Bachrach, Asaf and Andrew Nevins (2008), 'Introduction: approaching inflectional identity', in Asaf Bachrach and Andrew Nevins (eds), Inflectional identity (Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics 18), Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1-28.
